Health Issues in the Community
Health Issues in the Community (HIIC) is a training programme which looks at issues such as health, poverty, power and social justice in a different way.
Run by tutors across Scotland, it's aimed at increasing community capacity, increasing community participation, and establishing/consolidating community development approaches to tackling inequalities in health.
HIIC is managed by CHEX - The Community Health Exchange.

As part of their HIIC course, these students directed and performed a play on an issue close to their hearts: self-harm and suicide. The play, ‘She Died Waiting’, depicts the story of a young woman who self-harms.
